Clippings from the Blue Grass Clipper

February 20, 1919... The infant daughter of M/M Walter Lewis of Duckers Station died Thursday of pneumonia. The father is with the A.E.F. in France.

A wreck on the L & N line caused the Western Union News Service features, usually found in the Clipper’s inside pages, to be missing this week. The paper, as a result, has only four pages instead of the usual eight. Passenger and mail trains were delayed by up to 36 hours, for which L & N officials were heavily criticized as it would have been an easy matter to have transferred the mails.
